Human trafficking can happen in any community. There are general indicators applicable to everyone and specific indicators for nearly every profession. "Together we are building a comprehensive response to local human trafficking, prevention to survivor reentry." said CAN Co-founder, Mandy Bristol-Leverett.
What should attendees expect?
Registration is required and free. In-person seating is limited. Those seeking the training are encouraged to register soon. The event is from 7:00-9:00 pm EST and in-person check-in begins at 6:30 pm. There will be a special check-in for those seeking CEs. Attendees will learn what human trafficking and modern-day slavery look like in their community. They will hear survivor stories and be given tools and action steps they can take to make an ongoing difference. "It takes everyone's eyes to find what is hidden in plain sight," said Leverett.
CAN exists to equip church, community, and professionals to prevent, detect, end and heal local human trafficking. Together with church, community, school, government and business partners, CAN is building an army of everyday abolitionists and best-practice recovery resources in reach of every victim.
